What can you do about forehead lines which make you feel older than you are? At Rocky Mountain Dermatology in North Logan, UT, we offer complimentary consultations on a full range of aesthetic services. Medically cleared by our dermatologists, Dr. Robert Young or Dr. Jared Heaton, your new look could include BOTOX Cosmetic, one of the easiest ways to recreate your youthful facial appearance.
What is BOTOX Cosmetic?
BOTOX is a purified type of botulism toxin. Injected with a fine needle into selected facial areas, this FDA-approved medication reduces the contraction of underlying muscles, thus smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.
Typical areas of dynamic wrinkling include:
- The corners of the eyes
- The forehead
- Corners of the mouth
- Between the eyebrows
The American Osteopathic College of Dermatology states that when administered by qualified medical professionals, such as those at Rocky Mountain Dermatology in North Logan, BOTOX Cosmetic is very safe and really works well.
Your BOTOX treatments
After a skin exam, discussion of your aesthetic goals, and review of your medical history, you can begin your BOTOX treatment. Each session takes about half an hour, and you can return to your normal routine right away.
Most people feel a stinging sensation much like a mosquito bite as the needle enters the skin. There may be some site redness and puffiness, but patients also notice an almost immediate smoothing effect. You and your provider will determine how many sessions you need to maintain your youthful facial appearance.
Other medical uses for BOTOX
MedicalNewsToday cites several additional uses for BOTOX. They include:
- Treatment of migraine headache pain and jaw joint dysfunction
- Reduction of eyelid drooping and spasms
- Reduction of excessive sweating, particularly under the arms (hyperhidrosis)
- Correction of crossed eyes in children older than 12
- Control of upper limb spasms
The FDA has approved BOTOX for these conditions, and some doctors and dentists use BOTOX for off-label conditions, such as psoriasis and the hot flashes associated with menopause.
